So, I’m going to a halloween contest next weekend that has a $2,000 cash prizes: $1000 to best overall, the other 1,000 split between sexy, scary, and original categories. Every contest I’ve went to in this town has had given prizes to stupid costumes. One guy was a bag of pot and won $500. So, I’m trying to figure out something amazing.
I’m pretty good at makeup if I have a youtube tutorial.
So, my ideas were maybe day of the dead/skeleton:
Or Kristen Wiig’s character Dooneese:
I can’t decide between being scary or funny. I wanted to be Honey Boo Boo w/cheese balls, pageant dress, stuffed pig.. but I have a feeling a lot of people will do that.

@madteaparty: Haha, I really wanted to do it but I didn’t want to have 5 people in the same costume.. or even worse a guy in a honey boo boo costume. Guys seem to win everything! Or really slutty costumes. 🙂

If you go all out with the Honey Boo Boo costume I bet you’d have a good shot!

I’m sorry but I love the honey boo boo costume idea

I’m all about more serious costumes (just my taste preference) and vote Day of the Dead. I think its beautiful, but not sure if that costume would help you win.

Haha, I voted Sugar Skull, but Honey Boo Boo would be amazing. Get lots of sketti and butter, and a fake pig, you’ll be all set!

I say do day of the dead and go all out. I don’t think people will know who you are necessarily if you do the Kristen Wiig costume (I don’t know that character, but that’s probably just me!).
Honey Boo-boo would also be great, but yeah, maybe a lot of people will do that.

Love the Honey Boo-Boo idea! Don’t forget to jazz up a 2 liter with a “Go-Go Juice” label.

I agree that there will be tons of Honey Boo Boo’s and while one may win the $2000, I think you would be guaranteed a scary or sexy win with the sugar skull lady. I personally would be more impressed with the originality and skill it takes to execute that costume. I have never seen anything as amazing as that at the costume contests I have been to.

Yeah, I think I could pull off the makeup. I did this a couple years ago but a bat girl won and I wasn’t even nominated. I wish I knew “what wins”. I have fun regardless and LOVE the holiday but if I’m going to put in time, money, & effort, I’d love to win 🙂

I think if you did the Day of the Dead makeup to perfection, you’d have a good shot at winning.
Honey Boo Boo is a good idea, but you’re right, if a guy were to dress up in the same costume, he’d win.
